unchained

it is time to let go.

war. death. addiction. depression. rage. delusions. prison. people. the past. these chains. i have not been chained, however. i have carried the chains, dragged them. willingly. now it is time to let go.

this is what she has taught me,

for years i built my body to bear the weight of the chains without ever realizing that it was my mind that was suffering under this burden. now i can let go. now i know how to let go.

one by one i respectfully set the chains on the ground until none remain.

i walk. i run.

she is waiting for me there.
